We’re sensing that Apple might just have a hit on its hands with the iPad, at least in the medical field.  Epocrates, the medical software company did a survey of more than 350 clinicians to gauge their interest in the new tablet.  They found that:

  • Nine percent of survey respondents plan to buy the iPad when it was immediately available,
  • Another 13 percent plan to buy it within the year,
  • Thirty-eight percent of respondents expressed interest in the iPad with the request of more information to solidify their purchase decision

That means that almost 60% of doctors are considering the iPad for their work, with a third of those ready to buy.   Not too bad for a product that hits the streets in seven weeks.
